"Where do I start? Maya is one of my favorite collaborators for a number of reasons, the first being that she is so incredibly talented. Maya’s sense of melody, harmony and ability to sing, write, engineer and produce makes her so easy to work with as she is able to play any role needed in a session. Her creativity when it comes to musical composition, structure and lyrics makes every piece of music we work on feel fresh and exciting. More than anything, Maya is one of the most empathetic and loving humans I know. She makes everyone feel comfortable and brings out the best in you, not only as a creative but as a human too. I strongly recommend, you won’t regret it!"
"When I started working with Maya we instantly had a very close connection. She’s helped me with my songwriting, making sure my words had purpose.
Songwriting can be very nerve racking especially working with someone new, but Maya brought a sense of comfort to our sessions and always encouraged my ideas even if I thought it wasn’t good enough. Maya has supported me as a developing artist, always providing advice whenever I needed it. I love working with Maya and hope to work with her for many years, she has helped me flourish into the artist I have always envisioned myself to be."
